I go my way,
and my left foot says ‘Glory,’
and my right foot says ‘Amen’:
in and out of Shadow Creek,
upstream and down,
in a daze, dancing,
to the twin silver trumpets of praise.
~Annie Dillard Pilgrim at Tinker Creek
Every day should be a day of dancing,
of celebrating the fact we woke afresh,
a new start.
If I’m honest, not much feels new.
As I stumble about in my morning daze,
readying myself for the onslaught to come,
I step out and mumble “Glory”
and then “Amen”
until I really feel it
and believe it
and live it out.
Amen and Amen again.
